Error identifying partition
Last modified: 2016-10-20 11:04:46 EDT
I've gotten the same errors installing RH 5.1, 6.0, 6.1, and 6.2b on my
new machine. I used fips.exe to create a new 2.34Gb partition from my
~20Gb hard drive. Windows 98 recognizes it just fine. All 4 installations
I tried resulted in the same error, giving the following (in 6.1
Traceback (Innermost last):
File "/usr/bin/anaconda", line 225 in ?
intf.run (todo, test=test)
packages/text.py", line 1000 in run
rc = apply (step(), ste)
/site_package/textw/partioning.py", line 116 in __call__
Type Error: list of strings
This is very similar to other errors with python listed on the RH
troubleshooting website, with the exception of the partioning.py section.
The fixes listed to teh similar problem did not work to fix this one. Any
ideas? My hard drive is listed in the Windows control panel only as a
Maxtor 9 2049U6. ANy help would be much appreciated.
5.1 and 6.0 were not python based installations, so I am not really sure what
error messages you are getting with those releases. Tell me the behavior you
are seeing when installing on those distributions and I will take a look at it.
I can only imagine that you are seeing problems as a result of your drive size.
Please submit the output or "fdisk -l /dev/hda"
I finally figured out what the problem was - it ends up that RH's lack of
support for the Ultra66 hard drives is what was causing it. I ended up loading
the Gentus RH clone rather than playing with the hardware to change to 33,
loading the linux and then the patch, and then reconnecting the drive, although
i think that would have worked too.

Fixes issue #10108
Adds os::build::setup_env to hack/update-generated-bootstrap-bindata.sh
which ensures that the GOPATH env variable is set and not empty
